The dot turns to red to show that the phone's been exposed to moisture. If your phone was still under warranty, this voids the warranty. I've heard reports that sweat or humidity can cause the dot to turn red. The first thing your service provider will do upon receiving a crapped out phone is open it up and look at the dot. If you can find another busted phone that still has a good moisture detection sticker you can carefully swap them with tweezers. This will be hard to find however. What everyone should do upon getting a new phone is to locate the moisture detection sticker and cover it completely with plastic tape. In this way you can protect yourself from your service provider or the phone manufacturers attempt to avoid responsibility for their faulty products.

White screen


did you drop it in water, ?did you press the screen to hard and cracked the lcd panel? those are the most common reasons, oh, and dropping it, and also dropping it in water. I would suggest going over all those possibilities.. open up the back of your phone and pull out the battery, in all phones now they have a water sensor dot, it remains white always unless the phone was damaged by water, and warranty doesnt cover water damage, look for that little white dot, if its red, that means you gotta get a new phone, and if you try peeling if off theyll know youre covering up water damage, unless you were able to somehow obtain another white color changing dot to put back in your phone now in the exact place it should be, but techs are very good at catching bluffs. but if that white is intact to begin with, your phone should be under warrenty of some sort, and that means they owe you a new one. bottom line. BOOM

How do i find out if the motorola cliq im going to buy has had water damage?


when you pop the battery off there is a circular dot near the middle near the orange or black rubber thing that helps lock the SIM in and SD card.

The dot is likely either white or red. White should indicate that it is good and red if it had significant moisture/ water contact.

I spilled sprite on my g1!!


I dropped my motorola sliver in the bathtub full of water and it quit working totally. I called ATT where I got the phone and they told me to look under the battery. I lifted out the battery and they asked me if there was a white dot under it. I told them no but there was a red one. They said "gone". Meaning that the dot was usually white but if it turns red, the circuits are water/liquid damaged and to throw it away and get another phone. Look under your battery.

Voice message icon showing but no message


You can contact orange and have them refresh your voice mailbox but if that doesn't work you can connect your phone to iTunes on a computer and restore the software. Set up as new and see if the issue persist. If it is fixed you can try to restore from your back up. If the issue comes back when you put your information on there, then you will need to set up as new

Can I Have my razr repaired


Then you should take the phone to a repair center and have it fix for a fee.

The white dot on the back of the phone is to safeguard the manufacturer from malicious damaged or use by the customer.

So if it is red that means if had to come into contact with liquid , moisture or water at sometime.

Phone wont charge


Did you drop your phone in water? or do you live in a humid area?

Your phone was exposed to moisture. That red dot is a moisture sensitive piece of tape that changes colors when it gets wet.

If your phone still works, but the battery won't charge when connected to a home charger, you might try charging it in your car. Its a different type of current and may work with a somewhat damaged battery.

If that fails to fix the problem you may need to get a new battery.

Hope this helps

Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.

Phone will not turn on


ok, take out the battery and look and see you can see a white dot pice of circular paper, if it is red, your phone somehow got water in it, look at your battery(white dot paper) if it is red than you have water in you phone. now you need to dry it! leave it on your car dast board in the sun 24hrs or use a hair dryer ( use low heat) you must dry your phone and battery completely before the next step, Next step- find a good working battery and insert it in your phone, see if this will correct your problem, sometime the battery volt are very low or maybe the battery itself its bad, but make sure you put in a new battery to test this out, don't pay for the battery until you check you phone at the counter, ask for the right model for you phone.

good luck

Motorola Razor Water damage??


have talked with others who tried blow drying & then putting in freezer for few hours with phone & battery separate & yes the red normal after getting H2O damage shows the company out of warranty if you exchange phone through the warranty will be billed I think its like 110 or165 for At&t but if you call talk with them & tell them that phone stopped working screen blanked out & NO the red dot not there that it is white & ship your phone back when they receive it you will then be billed for it BUT when you call back in repeat OVER & OVER that when you sent it in that it was white & not your fault that warranty screwed up most of the time if you complain long enough you will get the charge removed :-) (work for cell company)
